This is the book that explains the mysteries and magic behind Christmas. There is much more to the history of Christmas than gold, frankincense and myrrh than most people are aware. Patrick Harding delves deep into the background of the Christmas rituals we now take for granted: sending cards, singing carols, eating turkey - and of course the arrival of Santa Claus. The result is a heart-warming, brilliantly written and thoroughly absorbing book - an enchanting festive read for those who want to know more about our traditions, and those intrigued by folklore and history.
